BAYarts launches new website, registration system
With social media now becoming the most popular source for up-to-the-minute news and events, BAYarts' website – its main source for information on programming, events and donations – needed to be updated to accommodate the more frequent use of smaller devices such as iPads and iPhones.
The site, bayarts.net, has a new look and is easier to maneuver and click through. The redesign was made possible by a grant from the Cleveland Foundation, also the source of funding for an updated online registration system. BAYarts operations manager Sarah Goldsberry, who helped implement the new system, says, "It is easier and more efficient for us and for our users, providing feedback which our customers appreciate." The website was designed by Dan Fauver of Lakehouse Publishing, a frequent BAYarts design collaborator.
BAYarts will continue to print and mail the popular quarterly newsletter which covers all the offerings in more detail. It is mailed to over 6,500 homes and is distributed throughout the Cuyahoga County Public Library system, Lorain County schools and libraries, and local businesses. Copies are also available at BAYarts.
